The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - August 5, 1910, Kadoka, South DakotaVOLUME 111 Fourth Annual Stanley County Fair, Kadoka, S. D., September 21-22-23, 1910 . 9 &*®g WETA NEWS ITEMS Chan. Davis and wife drove to Ka- doka Monday. A PROCLAMATION To Whomsoever These Presents Shall Come Greetings: Whereas, certain days specified in this paper have been set apart for holding the annual Fair, and whereas the institution is one for the profit and pleasure of this community, and the interest of its people will be pro- moted by attending it, studying its exhibits and witnessing the grand pano- rama of progress that is there spread out before them. Those days are pro- claimed spec ial holidays, set apart for the occasion, whereon all persons are commanded and required to lay aside all manner of conflicting business and present themselves at the fair grounds gate, there to enter and join the as- sembled multitude, and there spend as much time as possible, and educate and enjoy themselves to their fullest capacity. It is expected that this proclamation will be cheerfully obeyed under the pains and penalties, to those who do not, of being out of sympathy with the interests of agriculture and kindred employment represented at the exhibition, and mindful of the great benefits to accrue from this uncommon opportunity for rest, recreation and physical and mental improvement.

Of August is may first be said, its name is from Augustus, whom men have likened unto Ted, perhaps with- out injustice. He made the world go round about as many times a minute, and the news was always dull with- out the great Augustus in it. He had his Ananias Club for liars and fakers, and he loved to sail his little tub among the Roman breakers. He chunted peace a sort of plague, and never did pursue it. but let it rally at the Hague, and you couldn’t beat him to it. He preached about the same old things that Teddy has been preach- ing, and most of Rome’s awakenings resulted from his teachings. He bat- tled hotly for the right, and valiently imbued it, and the stork could not at- tempt to light but what he up and shooed it. pire enjoyed peace. There were no reformers, and times were good. The emperor liberally patronized litera- ture, and even wrote verses himself. Poets like Horace and Virgilhad their own enameled gold chariots with liveried alligator bait on the job be- hind, and instead of having the cruel circus games of Nero, the populace met in the colliseum and w’rote limer- ick for prizes. It is said that Augus- tus found Rome a city of brick, and left it a city of marble. He was a very proud man, and inorder to make his month as anybody’s, they took a day from February and added it to August, which originally had but thirty. Augustus deserves to be bet- ter known, and it is not his fault that that he is not. He tried everything from divorce to race suicide. He had three wives and one child, a daugh- ter Julia. He beat Antony and Cleo- patra 9 to 0 in the famous engagement at Actiuin, enough in itself to have left his name upon a ten-cent cigar; but he stood about the same chance against the luster of his immortal uncle as Miss Roosevelt stands the limelight with her sister Alice.

When the Black Hand got Julius, his nephew was but 19; but he had already worn the toga virillis and shot a bear. Mark Antony tried to get him out of the way by making him a sort of vice-president, but after Augustus had beated him 5 up and 2 to play on the green at Mo- dena the big drawing card of the Ro- man chautauqna was glad to mar- ry the young man's sister and be a kind of "Nick Longworth around the Roman White House.

After the 21st, August willbe under the zodiacal sign of Virgo. This will make Chautauqua crowds restless and outdoor orators will have to follow them around through the woods and talk to them when they will stand. It willalso cause Mr. Rockefeller to get busy on that story of his life, and monopoly will get so nervous it will have to have a trained nurse and take nourishment through a funnel. Per- sons born under Virgo have domestic tastes and know how to hold a baby. They are very bright and know what the political isssue is. They are san- guine in temperament and believe the worst is over. They abuse their stom- achs and will eat anything that does not bite them first. The time of green and growing, things willnear its termination, and the song the threshers sweetly sings will come with moderation. We’ll sort o’ think of Autumn time, the hunter and the nutter, and the fish- ing hole will wear a slime as thick as apple butter.
